We first present multicomponent flow models derived from the kinetic theory of gases. We then investigate the symmetric hyperbolic-parabolic structure of the resulting system of partial differential equations and discuss the Cauchy problem for smooth solutions. We also address the existence of deflagration waves also termed anchored waves. We further indicate related models which have a similar hyperbolic-parabolic structure, notably the Saint-Venant system with a temperature equation as well

We next investigate multicomponent ionized and magnetized flow models with anisotropic transport fluxes which have a different mathematical structure. We finally discuss numerical algorithms specifically devoted to complex chemistry flows, in particular the evaluation of multicomponent transport properties, as well as the impact of multicomponent transport.
